Deep Purple

Deep Purple are an English rock band formed in Hertford in 1968. They are considered to be among the pioneers of heavy metal and modern hard rock, although some band members claimed that their music cannot be categorised as belonging to any one genre. They were once listed by the Guinness Book of World Records as "the globe's loudest band", and have sold over 100 million albums worldwide, including 7.5 million certified units in the US. Deep Purple were ranked number 22 on VH1's Greatest Artists of Hard Rock programme. more »

Listen to me...
I've got a warning for you
You've got to learn to take more care
'Cause if you swim in dirty water

Be careful how you dry your hair
In a room within a room
In a hole within a hole
You've got to learn to share your secrets
Or you'll lose your soul
    
I've got the evidence
I know you broke
The unwritten law
Another town, another one night stand
You know, you broke the law...

It's so hard to hold back
When the fire is in your eyes
A silver dollar in my pocket
I don't like surprises

I've got your souvenir
Is that the price I've got to pay?
It ain't been that long
Since the last charade

I've got the evidence
I know you broke
The unwritten law
Another town, another one night stand
You know, you broke the law...

I know you're guilty
But I'm carrying the blame
I took out much more than I put in
And I felt the pain
In a dirty little room
With nowhere left to hide
You told the truth with your eyes
But you lied inside

I've got the evidence
I know you broke
The unwritten law
Another town, another one night stand
You know, you broke the law...
